Electric cars, as well as hybrids, grew 115% in the first quarter of the year and to accompany the development, Anfavea plans to install 150,000 new charging points by 2035, understand the details.
Rise of hybrid and electric cars: Anfavea thinks of 150,000 new charging points
In his last press conference as President of the National Association of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, Anfavea, Luiz Carlos Moraes announced the creation of a working group focused on infrastructure for electromobility.
Consisting of representatives of automakers, the group may receive collaboration from other companies, including vehicle importers.
The group’s intention is to map main tram wheels and define incentives for market development.
Altogether, there are three main objectives, the first of which is the definition of priority routes for fast charging stations on highways.
Second, the group aims to bring together partners to create a network of gas stations, such as highway concessionaires and energy companies.
In addition, the entity intends to provide for the identification of possible incentives for the use of electrified vehicles, such as reduced taxes and fees, exemption from rotation, among others.
“Today we have in Brazil around 1,000 charging points for an estimated fleet of 10,000 electric vehicles.” informed Moraes.
He also recalled that, according to the projections of the study ‘The path to decarbonization of the automotive sector’, presented by ANFAVEA in August of last year, in 2035 we will have something around 3.2 million electric vehicles running in the country.
Thus, according to projections, the country will demand the installation of more than 150 thousand recharge pointsas explained by Luiz Carlos Moraes.
Start of 2022 was positive for the electrified car segment
With the best month of March in the historical series of the Brazilian Association of Electric Vehicles, ABVE, sales of light electrified vehicles in Brazil grew 115% in the first quarter of 2022, which totaled 9,844 units, against 4,582 in the same period of 2021.
Electric and hybrid vehicles follow an inverse trend to the total market of domestic sales of automobiles and light commercial vehicles, which fell by 25% in the comparison between the first quarters of 2022 and 2021.
Last month’s 3,851 electrified license plates represent an increase of 106% over March of the previous year (1,872) and 12% over February 2022 (3,435).
March was also the third best month in the historical series, only surpassed by December and August 2021 (4,545 and 3,873 registrations, respectively).
The performance of the first quarter confirms the good moment of the electromobility in Brazil, which enters its third straight year of solid growth, in contrast to the decline in total domestic sales.
The total light electrified fleet in Brazil is 86,986 vehicles (January 2012 to March 2022).
If the current trend is maintained, the electrified fleet could reach 100,000 vehicles by the end of this semester.
The numbers refer to the sum of sales of electrified cars, SUVs, SUVs and light commercial vehicles, including hybrid electric (HEV), plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and all-electric (BEV).
